EMMITT UTILITIES PROJECTS - GAS
Below is a selection of recent gas projects that Emmitt Utilities has worked on in Australia.
CURRENT PROJECTS: GAS RENEWALS
Emmitt Utilities, in conjunction with our valued clients and asset owner AusNet, are delivering multiple projects in Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong and Colac, running through to 2023.
These projects range from 5km to 16km in main length with the upgrade of PVC and cast iron pipe to a polyethylene pipe natural gas reticulation network from low pressure to high pressure main. This helps the network to be less vulnerable to leak into the earth and atmosphere and provides the consumer with a dependable service, which is environmentally friendly.
PREVIOUS PROJECTS: MICKLEHAM ROAD, CRAIGIEBURN
In conjunction with our valued client Porter Utilities and AusNet, Emmitt Utilities installed 4km of 180mm large diameter supply main augmentation via full rock HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling) and open cut methodology.
Due to supply demand with additional estates being developed throughout the Craigieburn area, this required reticulation of the network that will be able to cater comfortably for the volume and extra usage with no supply issues.
Through the challenging ground conditions, our drill crew and gas main laying crew worked diligently for 4 months to complete this project along one of the most demanding thoroughfares in Melbourne.
PREVIOUS PROJECTS: GRAHAM ROAD PORT MELBOURNE
In 2019, Emmitt Utilities, in conjunction with our valued clients and asset owner Multinet Gas, completed an extremely complex large diameter distribution supply main augmentation on busy Graham Street Port Melbourne. The network is primarily made up of cast iron mains that have been in operations since the1880’s. These mains were upgraded from low pressure to high pressure polyethylene pipes to improve capacity and reliability on the network. The sandy ground conditions made this project challenging with trenches filling in on themselves and enhanced our adaptability to manage different environmental encounters.
PREVIOUS PROJECTS: NEW TOWN GAS INFRASTRUCTURE
We have played an invaluable role in bringing Ausnet and Enwave gas to areas, old and new. The project was initiated to reduce residents and businesses costs by up to 30% for LPG.
At Emmitt Utilities, we specialise in HDD (horizontal directional drilling) installations of supply and reticulation mains ranging from 63mm to 180mm pipelines.
Areas we have assisted in are
Lakes Entrance (Tas Gas)
Maldon (Tas Gas)
Marong (Tas Gas)
Kerang (Tas Gas)
Nathalia (Tas Gas)
Location: Lakes Entrance, VIC
The Victorian State Government initiated a Regional Gas Infrastructure Program in 2014 with the aim of supplying natural gas to remote towns in Victoria to reduce their expenses. Emmitt Utilities has been working together with Brookfield Infrastructure Group and Comdain Infrastructure on a compressed natural gas (CNG) delivery solution at Lakes Entrance, in South Eastern Victoria. This project was completed in 2017.
Location: Marong & Maldon, VIC
The Victorian State Government initiated a Regional Gas Infrastructure Program in 2014 with the aim of supplying reticulated natural gas to remote towns in Victoria.
Emmitt Utilities worked together with Brookfield and Porter Utilities in connecting Marong and Maldon, Victoria, to a natural gas network.
Location: Huntly, VIC
This $4.5 million project initiated by the Victorian State Government extended the natural gas network to Huntly, VIC in 2016.
Emmitt Utilities worked together with Porter Utilities, installing the reticulated supply network covering 580 properties consisting of approximately 3.5 km of supply pipeline and 13.1 km of reticulation pipeline.
